Just a few photo from the last two weeks.
When you notice the Century plant stalk stops before it reaches the
orbit of the space station.
Phase 2 is starting: The plant takes a moment to rest before
sending out branches that soon will be covered with blooms.
Side note: the space station has been visible zooming
across the Tucson sky. Outstanding wonderful !
Everyday the branches grow
at incredable speed.
Last week the clouds appeared to taunt us with the hope of rain.
But it is to early for the monsoons.
A small amount of rain did fall on the mountains.
We also are starting fire season and alread have had one fire up on Mt. Lemmon.
Swirling with a hint of rain.
This one came out somewhat blurry.
I was shooting through my studio window
as the colors were changing by the second.
Of course another photo of The Square Ones as they strike another pose
or because thehamish probably saw another lizard.
A card I drew of the blossoms on the Century Plant.
The Prickly Pears are blooming
just as beautiful as a rose.
Prickly Pear pad full of buds and blooms.
